The Design Build Relationship
 *********************************************     

The Design-Build method of project delivery offers the Owner a single source of responsibility during both the design and construction of the project, lessening the administrative burden placed on the Owner.  It also provides the benefit of a proven design and construction experience.

As the Design Builder, Harris Plastering & Construction, Inc. will employ the services of a qualit Architectural Firm and oversee the design phase.  This will ensure total budget control and schedule efficiency.  When a project demands it, we can also involve specialty contractors during the design phase in the areas of mechanical, plumbing, and electrical who can supply designs and problem solving within their field of specialization.

During the construction phase, we will act as General Contractor.  We will construct and oversee the project to ensure that it is providede on-time and within budget.  We can ensure this because of our involvement from the beginning in providing economical methods of construction and scheduling.

Using the Design-Build approach will allow the design and construction phases of the project to overlap equating to the Owner being able to use their building more quickly than the more common Design-Build-Bid approach.  The Design-Build approach will also take the Design Professional and the Contractor out of opposing corners, as all to often happens, and allow all parties to sit around the project table and work toward the same goal, a satisfied client.
